Subject: A fine performance, with some vivid timpani!
A brief thank you for this transfer. The performance is fine (and the slow tempo with which SK leads off the finale is interesting!) and ought to convince any doubters that SK really knew his Beethoven! I suspect some sound-reduction may have affected the sound of the upper strings, which sound a bit odd at times, but there's a marvellous payback in the extraordinarily vivid basses & timpani, for instance in the second part of the Adagio. It gives the adagio in particular an intriguingly different sound which certainly makes you sit up and listen! Thank you!
